In this study, it is aimed to examine the sociological dimensions of innovation. Innovation has emerged because of the needs related to social, cultural, and economic social conditions. This state of regeneration can be compared to the human body rebuilding itself at any moment. In addition to traditional cooperation models in financial, technological, and social terms, innovation can be made possible by the realization of cooperation between talented individuals, institutions and organizations with different cultures and backgrounds. In the study, the sociological dimensions of innovation have been created because of the theoretical compilation of related studies after a detailed literature review. During the review of the literature on the subject, content analysis is performed, and it is seen that three sociologically different themes about innovation come to the fore. These themes are Competitive lifestyle (social simulation), technology-oriented consumption habits (technological innovation) and quality-oriented economic relationships (quality innovation). The study emphasizes the correlation between these three themes and innovation. As a result, eight categories play a decisive role in innovation: impact, people and talent, partnership, co-placement centers, community identification, outreach and dissemination, management and governance, and business model, financial plan, and sustainability. Due to the interaction between themes defined as innovation and competitive lifestyle, technology-oriented consumption habits and quality-oriented economic relations, there is a dynamic network between people-oriented relationships and technology-oriented behavior and consumption patterns. While shaping this social network, every factor that innovation interacts with should be handled in a holistic manner.
